Potomac River Fishing Report


Submitted Feb 08, 2012 by Reel Bass Adventures:

“No changes over the past week in patterns or fishing. We are still making good catches of bass along quick dropping shorelines. The grub remains our most productive bait followed by a Norman Deep Baby N. Locate a good ledge with the crank bait and then switch to the grub. Spend time on any area you find bass. If you fish it they will come. A sunny, calm day has been a key for success. The blue cat fishing in the Potomac is drawing a lot of attention. Some days we see more cat fisherman than bass anglers. The cats are being caught along the main river channel with cut gizzard shad on a 8 ought hook with a two ounce sinker on a sliding rig. Big roe yellow perch are starting to show in larger numbers. They can be found in 13 to 16 feet of water. They like a Sting Ray grub or a Berkley drop shot minnow.”

Water Temperature: 44 degrees; Water clarity: 1-2 feet.
